“Coronavirus wants to kill you, It wants to take all the life out of your lungs so that you cannot even breathe…please listen”

A pastor in Northern Ireland left struggling to breathe by coronavirus said it had sucked the life out of his lungs.

Mark McClurg, has been in the intensive care unit for a week but will soon be moving back to a ward.

The married father-of-three posted a set of videos on Twitter from his hospital bed using breathing support.

He said:

“This coronavirus is deadly and is dangerous.

“Coronavirus wants to kill you.

“It wants to take all the life out of your lungs so that you cannot even breathe.”

Mr McClurg is part of the Elim Pentecostal Church.

He said he is grateful to be alive, and added that nurses and doctors had cared for him night and day despite the risk to their own health.

“They have saved my life. I am grateful that I am living.”

“Don’t think this won’t touch you. Don’t think for a moment that this is just a cough and a cold you will get.

“Look at me and listen.

“If you get coronavirus and you have to go into the intensive care unit, that means you are going to struggle to breathe, you could go on a ventilator, so please listen to all the advice of the Government.”
